The higher you go the more the steering gets outa whack. You said the previous lift had a lowered track bar mount on the frame side? Was this the front or rear?was the axle side raised as well? You just need to make certain your track bar and drag link are perfectly parallel. Were the old track bars not adjustable? Good plan to wait to order shocks and bump stops. Did you order all 4 arms or just lowers? I don't see why you would need the control arm correction brackets if you have adjustable lowers, but I would think about raising shock mounts and maybe even raising lower control arm brackets just to get them up outa the rocks.
Are you sticking with the 37's?
Which way is the taper for the drag link end? Is it supposed to go in from the bottom?
Thanks for the info.
The previous lift had a lowered trac bar mount on the front frame side and stock height on the axle end.
Rear trac bar is stock and was raised at the axle and rubs on the spring because the lower spring mounts point to the rear because of the rotated axle etc.
The front trac bar was a monster Teraflex that doesn't have the clearance for the new axle housing and up travel I'm looking for. I have a JKS on now for the mock up as it has the forward curve at the diff for extra clearance but there will be a metalcloak one here soon with that package I bought. Will just see what looks better and go from there.
All new control arms headed this way as well with the kit I ordered from Metalcloak and I will play plenty with all that when it gets here before we start cutting and welding.
37's for now but would like to go just a little bigger if it all works.
Taper on the new axle for the drag link is set up to come from the bottom which I will leave to get enough up travel and the new setup is raised some anyway.
From what it looks like so far the raised trac bar mount on the new front axle will have my trac bar and drag link right on the money.
There will be plenty of testing and checking before we finalize the project. One thing I do really appreciate is all those who have gone before me with this kind of project. Also how many there are and that there is a wealth of information and great products out there.
Thanks to all who have gone down this road before me. It will save me a lot of experimentation and aggravation.
